It’s no surprise that America’s Dairyland isn’t thrilled by the increasing popularity of a foreign competitor, but the depths to which the State of Wisconsin has stooped to outlaw Kerrygold Irish butter are outright un-American:
Kerrygold butter has become a staple in many American households as people are waking up to the health benefits of grass-fed butter and realizing not many American companies make a comparable product.
So the Wisconsin dairy industry just saw to it that citizens would have no other choice but to buy their factory-farmed, grain- and candy-fed butter.
Ironically they used an old, arbitrary law claiming to protect consumers from “ungraded” butter. Kerrygold is now working to prove to lawmakers what consumers already know – that their butter far exceeds American consumer safety standards.
In the meantime, Wisconsinites can stock up on Kerrygold on Amazon 🙂
